Wow, I didn't expect an episode like this tonight. Granted the previews showed that something was coming but I did not expect the suspense, punctuated with the scenes at Woodbury. I will tackle those first.
Andrea has to be the dumbest character on the show. I don't know how anyone can justify her decisions. She shot Daryl and slept with Shane last season. She is just so lost, and she cannot read people well. Andrea should be listening to Michonne, but Andrea was hit on twice so of course she wants to stay.
Meanwhile, all hell broke loose at Home, Sweet Prison, Home. The chaos was started by a prisoner trying to take his house back. The casualties and the humanity that came across in these scenes were mind blowing. T-Dog didn't get many lines, and I didn't remember he was a God driven man. But his sacrifice in saving Carol was truly moving and gory. It was the best of humanity. While at Woodbury, you have the worst of humanity in the Governor, who obviously has an end game; and he sees Michonne and Andrea as a part of it.
It finally came time for Lori to give birth. I didn't expect her to die during this episode or birth. But as the previews revealed no one is the same after this death. Lori had her many faults as a character. I thought she was so short sighted at times, but in the end her death was praise worthy (along with the performance). There will be a ripple effect for the rest of the season, and I cannot wait to see how the writers decided to manifest it.
